Even in the ancient world, it was usually the army with the strength and power of their military vehicles who won the battles. An armored elephant with arches hoisted on its back was soon replaced with tanks. Giant galleys with slaves manning the oars were replaced with battleships. The elite cavalry has been replaced with a seemingly endless supply rugged armored trucks and off-road vehicles.
These are the military vehicles of our time, from Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor to the AAV7 Amphibious Assault Vehicle which is designed to bring up to 25 Marines off ship and to land in order to engage the enemy. These vehicles do everything from sail the oceans to protect the mainland, rocket across the sky to provide ground support, and rumble across rugged terrain to find the enemy in some of the most hostile hotbeds in the world. From tactical surveillance to troop transport to battle itself, these vehicles will get the job done, better and faster than anything else in the world.
